Description

Dr Michael Papasavva will present exciting new research on the CDGEL cohort in East London, combining growth screening with child developmental assessments.

The overarching objective of this project is to detect poor growth and delayed development early in childhood by developing an automated growth-screening algorithm. The screening algorithm was created using cohort data and piloted for feasibility and acceptability in Tower Hamlets. The ultimate goals are to detect linear growth failure and delayed development early to identify two groups of children: first, children with serious underlying medical disorders, in whom earlier diagnosis and management would improve clinical outcomes; and second, children whose poor growth and/or delayed development is a manifestation of socioeconomic disadvantage, in whom targeted pre-school interventions may improve long term health and education outcomes.

Summary

Join Dr. Michael Papasavva as he presents groundbreaking research on the CDGEL cohort in East London. He will discuss his project that strives to identify poor growth and developmental delays in children early on through an automated screening algorithm. This tool aims to flag children with severe medical disorders for early treatment and assist those whose growth and development may be hindered by socioeconomic disadvantages. Not only will this presentation be insightful, but the potential long-term implications for health and education outcomes make it a must-see.

Learning objectives

1. Understand the foundational aspects of the CGEL project, including its aims to detect poor growth and delayed development in early childhood. 2. Learn about the development and implementation of an automated growth-screening algorithm in early childhood, with particular focus on its feasibility and acceptability in Tower Hamlets. 3. Understand the method of data collection and data usage in the creation of the screening algorithm, with focus on cohort data. 4. Discuss the potential benefits of early detection of linear growth failure and delayed development, especially in the context of serious underlying medical disorders and socioeconomic disadvantage. 5. Understand how this research can contribute to improving clinical outcomes for children with serious medical disorders and how targeted pre-school interventions can improve long-term health and educational outcomes for children from socioeconomically disadvantaged backgrounds.
